Morrell Falls National Recreation Trail is a 6.9 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Ovando, Montana that features a lake and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from June until October. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
The trail is easy yes but there are a lot of exposed tree roots and a fairly steep section of trail so I would recommend leaving the strollers at home! Watch for horses in the summer and the occasional bicyclist.
beautiful usually traffic but beautiful
Awesome hike. Spring is the best time. less bugs and the falls are spectacular
Great hike. Not strenuous. About 6 miles or so round trip to the water falls which were awesome. Bear country but no signs today, the berries weren't quite ripe yet though. Our 9, 6 and 4 year olds had fun on this hike even with getting rained on the whole way back.
beautiful, easy hike... not steep or very difficult. A few areas where there is an incline. Falls are very beautiful! A lot of traffic on the trail when we went, but still a sight!
Very fun hike to a beautiful waterfall, trail was packed with people. Pretty easy with very little short spurts of intermediate hills. Loved it. Dog loved it. Great hike!
This is one of my favorite hikes - absolutely breathtaking
it was so great. i think one of the best hikes i have ever been on. so pretty and pretty moderate.
Rated as moderate, but I would call it easy. It is a good family hike. Great places to stop and relax along the way. Don't forget bug spray and bear spray. Morrell Creek drainage is known for grizzly bears.
A day-hike that is suitable for all skill levels, Morrell Falls lets you experience several different aspects of a forest. From tight-in trees, to marshy open areas. Starts out rather dry, then very moist as you approach the falls. Depending on time of year, the volume of water over the falls will vary. With high water in the spring, you can also count on the roads being muddy as well. Lastly - mosquitoes are HORRIBLE in June and July.
6ish miles from parking to the falls. Beautiful woods and the water features are a wonderful surprise as you go along the trail. The tree roots are plentiful and large. We rate this trail better than moderate for bikes and moderate for hikes. Kids would not enjoy a bike ride here, but a hike would be fun. The falls are worth every hard earned pedal and step of the one mile elevation change. The round trip took us about 2.5 hours on our bikes.
The falls were perfect when we were there. It was an easy hike for me but maybe moderate for others. We had it all to ourselves late in the day. We only saw one other small group the entire time. We really enjoyed it.
Great day hike.
